Michelle Della Fave with the Richie Vitale Quartet

Michelle DellaFave became a familiar face to millions of television viewers in the late 1960s and early '70s through her work each week on Dean Martin’s wildly successful NBC television series. At the age of 19, she was selected to be one of Dean’s Golddiggers both on his show and on The Golddiggers' own network summer variety series. A year later, she was chosen to be one of four members of The Dingaling Sisters, who performed their own numbers and sang with with Dean and his guest stars on every episode of his program. Those programs gave her the opportunity to work alongside some of the most famous luminaries and legends in the history of show business — from Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Lena Horne to Jimmy Stewart, Orson Welles, Debbie Reynolds, and more. As a member of The Golddiggers and lead singer of The Dingalings, Michelle took part in two of Bob Hope’s USO Tours, entertaining American troops stationed around the world. She and her girl group cohorts also served as the opening act for numerous Las Vegas acts, from Tony Bennett to Engelbert Humperdinck. In addition, Michelle was featured regularly as one-half of the singing-dancing "Soul Sisters" on Jonathan Winters' syndicated series; made guest appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and The Mike Douglas Show; played one of the Radio City Rockettes in the film version of the musical "Annie"; and has sung and acted in many Equity theater presentations. From 2007 to 2009, she and one of her colleagues from The Dean Martin Show toured the country as the musical duo "Blue Eyed Soul,” entertaining veterans, as well as active duty service men and women, and visiting VA hospitals. And over the last few years, Michelle has continued performing for veterans’ groups, and headlined concerts at several New York City nightclubs, including The Metropolitan Room (where she’s performed a total of five times), 54 Below, The Duplex and Don’t Tell Mama. Besides producing two of her own vocal CDs — a pop jazz album called "Cool Burn" and a Gospel collection entitled "Transformed — Michelle has also recorded several popular singles over the last few years, with all of her music available on itunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other outlets. More information and numerous photos of Michelle can be found on her official Facebook page ( and on The Golddiggers Super Site (
Michelle’s music covers her many years of working on the Dean Martin show with styles reminiscent of the great solo artists from the 50’s and 60’s. Her background as a pop singer includes some big hits from the 60’s and 70’s. From jazz to Latin and some rock and roll, Michelle and her quartet aim to please in any genre.  Michelle is accompanied by the Richie Vitale Quartet.  As musical director, Richie and his amazing talents on trumpet and conga’s, create arrangements that bring an eclectic mixture of standards, pop, and jazz, which will indeed delight the taste of all ages. The show will also include a few surprises sure to entertain, keeping you wanting more.
As her beloved past employer and quintessential star Dean Martin stated on camera of the Dean Martin Show, “this girl can sing!”
